Poetry is the music of the soul, Physics is the study of motion, Dance is the language of the body. What happens when you fuse them together? This could be your only chance to WATCH THIS LIVE! Join us for our first Creative Reactions night featuring Claire Guest and Mark Fromhold. Our sci-art pair are going to give us a behind-the-scenes glance at what their respective artistic and scientific processes look like, followed by one of Nottingham’s best choreographers, Hal Mayer, coming to us with an intricate and intriguing piece.
